“Oh, a real tree, always a real tree”

Three tips for decorating the tree

  1. Choose a theme for the tree, and try to base your decorations and colour scheme around it
  2. Try to think of alternative ways of ‘filling’ the branches aside from tinsel!
  3. Always buy one more set of tree lights than you expect to need

“We took inspiration from pictures we found in magazines of Christmas trees decorated in a single colour, and especially loved trees with white and glass decorations. We based our decorations around those colours, and bought a mixture of delicate clear glass baubles, ornate frosted ornaments, silver and white decoupage baubles, and reels of silver and white ribbon.”

“It depends on the setting. Real trees are best for period-style properties and artificials work best in a modern setting.”

Three tips for decorating the tree

  1. Make sure your tree has plenty of lights
  2. Balance out a tree scheme by buying 4-6 of every design of bauble
  3. Tie in your tree with your home’s interior design

“I love the very traditional but minimalist look which can be found in the Scandinavian Christmas – wooden textures, fresh colours such as whites, silvers and greens, and an emphasis on woodland features. I wanted to complement my main trees with a little forest of miniature trees full of woodland animals and traditional wooden decorations. I am planning to replace my fake white trees with a real tree to better complement my Scandinavian forest.”

Three tips for decorating the tree

  1. Decide on a colour/theme and work all your decorations around it.
  2. More is DEFINITELY more!
  3. Make sure you finish it all off with a stunning tree-topper.

“My inspiration comes from my love of bright jewel colours combined with a slightly childish, nostalgic element. I think my favourite ornaments are the ones my children like best, the ones they remember from previous years. I don’t change decorations, but I do add new ones each year as I can’t resist buying them.”
